Stylish and powerful, the HC6500 home theatre projector from Mitsubishi Electric delivers outstanding, high-contrast 1080P images in an aesthetically pleasing black chassis that easily blends in to any room environment.

HC6500 1080P Home Theatre Projector


  • Reon-VX processor with HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) technology
  • Inorganic LCD panel
  • 15,000:1  Contrast Ratio
  • 1200 Lumens brightness (maximum)
  • Native 1080P Widescreen resolution
  • 17dBA operating volume (in low mode)
  • Powered focus and zoom
  • Motorised lens shift (horizontal and vertical) 
  • Dual HDMI v1.3 inputs

  • Thanks to it's impressive range of features, including the improved swift auto-iris algorithm for amazing contrast ratio levels up to 15,000:1, the Extra-low dispersion glass lenses for crystal lcear images right to the edge of the screen, and an industry leading quiet operation of just 17dBA, the HC6500 is raising the bar when it's comes to home theatre enjoyment.




    Next-generation inorganic LCD panel for full high-definition projection

    Traditionally, most LCD panels found in projectors have been manufactured with organic compounds that, with enough usage, will begin to break down over time, resulting in loss of picture quality and contrast. The LCD panel found in the HC6500 is comprised of inorganic compounds, so even after long hours of use, high picture quality is maintained with high contrast. This 1920 x 1080 dot full-HD resolution LCD panel can reproduce images of true high-definition quality with rich blacks and vivid colours.




    Full high definition lens system with Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lenses 

     ED (extra-low dispersion) glass lenses

    To achieve superior 1080P image reproduction, the HC6500 is equipped with a lens system comprised of 17 elements in 14 groups, including three ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses, which are more costly and deliver higher performance than conventional glass lenses. This lens system dramatically improves chromatic aberration and peripheral focus, giving you sharper images right to the edge of the screen.



    New optical engine greatly increases installation flexibility

    To allow impressive big-screen images to be enjoyed even in a small room, the HC6500 is equipped with a 1.6x power zoom and focus. The projection distance for a 100-inch (16:9) picture is just 3.1 meters. In addition, there is also a power lens shift for moving the lens vertically and horizontally, greatly increasing installation flexibility.



    Silicon Optix Reon-VX next-generation video processor

     Reon VX

    The HC6500 is equipped with the latest Reon-VX chip produced by the US company Silicon Optix, a chip widely used on high-end AV equipment and which has earned an outstanding reputation among industry professionals. Renowned for its HQVTM (Hollywood Quality Video) technology, the Reon-VX  provides high-precision I/P conversion for sharper images from any video source, a high performance video scaler for superior resolution conversion, and optimisied chromatic up-sampling for more faithful reproduction of high definition colour images.


    One of the industry's quietest projectors, just 17dBA

    Thanks to a redesigned cooling system and the projector chassis's effective sound dampening design,  fan operating noise is barely perceptible at an amazingly low 17dBA (low mode).

    Our newly developed Auto Iris for contrast ratios up to 15,000:1 

    The HC6500 features a swift auto-iris control algorithm, which offers high speed transitions between light and dark images, for faithful reproduction of scene sequences in your favourite films or shows. Combined with the HC6500's original contrast control, the auto-iris delivers contrasts up to 15,000:1, always ensuring you get the richest blacks, the brightest whites, and the most vivid colours in between.

    Side Loading Lamp

    Users can replace the lamp with out taking down the projector if ceiling mounted. This design simplifies lamp replacements without turning the projector around or over when mounted on the ceiling or resting on a shelf. This design helps to reduce overall cost of ownership and maintenance.


    Dual HDMI v1.3 connectors comaptible with "Deep Colour"

    Allowing for a true digital connection to your HD equipment.

     *Maximum of 5000 hours at low mode and 2000 hours at standard mode. Lamp life is defined as the average time until brightness is reduced by half; it is not a guaranteed life for all lamps. Lamp life will vary considerably depending on the usage environment and conditions, and whether regular maintenance such as cleaning is performed.
